No doubt you caught the “Pulp Fiction in Typography” video going around a few months back. Ever since I’ve been noticing plenty of interesting cases of motion and type being used together to visually narrate audio.
Some are lush and detailed with accompanying illustration or video, whereas others are spartan and plain; simple colours and minimal type are used to effectively illustrate ideas, and that’s about it. The latter are harder to pull off, but demonstrate how effective graphic and motion design can be when done well.
Taken from a variety of sources like movie clips, songs, and grad projects, there are a lot of neat typography experiments on YouTube. I’ve curated a few I thought were particularly good. Enjoy!
(Note that some of these have language that many will find offensive. Proceed with caution.)
